  1. Yep, be patient. You should Provide multiple bird feeder styles and foods that attract more birds to your backyard. Adding trees, shrubs, and flowers to your backyard enhance its seamless, natural feel for the birds. Birds are naturally attracted to bright colors, so pique their attention by offering a variety of colors around your yard. Red is especially known to attract hummingbirds and many feeders come in a bright red hue to catch their eye. While orange and yellow have been known to attract Orioles and Goldfinches and feeders specific to them often come in these hues.
  2. I agree with everyone's opinion, they are house finches
  3. Recently I started to feed the squirrels so that they wouldn't compete for food with the birds. I found a funny squirrel feeder, It is a Horse Head feeder of Accoutrements. Watching them go nuts over the feeder was pretty funny. We laughed so hard, and it became an instant hit for the kids. The head is hollow inside, and you can put a variety of nuts and seeds to attract them.
  4. There are so many birds in my yard, I can't remember all of them. a few birds that come often are sparrow, cardinal, woodpecker, goldfinch, blue Jay. That great to see a lot of birds.
  5. Tray Or Platform Feeders attract the widest variety of seed-eating feeder birds. However, to attract the greatest variety of birds to your yard, provide several different feeder types offering a variety of foods. You’ll find that some species are more likely to use one kind of feeder over another. Nyjer (also called thistle) feeders are especially popular with finches, pine siskins, and common redpolls. Suet feeders attract a variety of woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, titmice, jays, and starlings. Nectar feeders will attract orioles, hummingbirds.
  6. They enjoy nuts, especially peanuts–whole or already shelled. They also like common birds feed like suet, cracked corn, and black oil sunflower seeds. However, because of their size, they will need to feed on a platform feeder or a large tray.
  7. House sparrows eat grains and seeds, our discarded food, and insects. They’re happy to eat many commercial bird seed mixtures. Some people hate house house sparrows, because they are an introduced species in North America and are invasive in their habit. They have driven native birds out of certain habitats by outcompeting with them for resources and through sheer population growth.
  8. Black-Oil Sunflower is the most popular bird seed, and attracts a variety of birds to your feeder. Blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, finches, nuthatches, and sparrows love it.
